The coin in itself is very cool, but the selling point is definitely the fact that it glows in the dark.

“”Gaze up at the waving red-and-white flag that all Canadians hold so dear, dynamic and uplifting like our country itself, fittingly set against a brightly coloured fireworks display that reveals extra sparkle in the dark,” says the Royal Mint’s description of the coin. “After exposure to light, the fireworks and flag glow like real fireworks!”

The coin is 99.99% pure silver, weighing 7.96 grams and measuring 27 millimetres in diameter.

If you want this five dollar coin, it’ll set you back $29.99.
